Hellow fellow rail travellers
Like every year, we can expect a timetable change around 10 December 2023.
All the railway companies are working hard to get the new timetable for 2024. Which means we will slowly get some insights and announcements in new offers, and changes in offers the next weeks.
If you’re planning for a big trip around Europe in ‘24, please note that information after 10 december 2023 is scarce. This will improve from medio october. Patience is key ;)
In this topic we try to bundle the relevant news and information about changes in offers on routes that are traditionally interesting for the typical Interrailer or Eurailers (night trains, long distance new international connections, opening of new lines, touristically intersting routes...).
So if you have any interesting updates, please share! It can only help travellers planning for ‘24 to know better what expect.
For your information:
- It’s not very interesting to state that your daily commuter train is planned 5 min earlier than the year before. We’re really looking for routes and connections popular for Interrailers/Eurailers.
- For all of you looking to plan your trips after December 9 2023, timetables will start to update from October on. No panic if no results show, just wait a couple of days/weeks and information will seep in. Please hold in mind that some train operators can be quite late with uploading the new schedule.
- Rule of thumb: you can expect more or less the same offer as this year’s schedule. Want to plan ahead, then choose a random date somewhere next week and you’ll get a good indication of your route. The biggest changes are listed below.
- If you have very specific questions about a specific connection, best create a seperate topic. This post will try to give a summary for the most significant changes on European rails for the ‘24 timetable.
